have a SWAT team!"
...But another question raised by the GAO analysis is not answered. Some of
those agencies, such as ICE, FBI, US Marshal Service, Secret Service,
etc. need to be well armed on the roles of protecting the public. Other
agencies such as the IRS and the NIH seem to be over-weaponized, a
frightening concept for a government that is supposed to serve the
people, not vice versa.
The NIH is National Institutes of Health, that one makes you wonder if
they’ve gone from healing and health to something else. And the
inventory information of the NIH was deemed too sensitive to include in a
chart (see page 34). Think about that for a moment…Too Sensitive? Does
the NIH have covert operations? Do they stop the spread of the flu with
a gun? “Stop sneezing, or we’ll blow your brains out?” Give me a break.
And don't forget the friggin' Dept. of Education using armed agents to kick in doors and such. At the wrong address. Because 'investigation'.
